Well already Mark Twain compared Berlin and Chicago in 1892 ....
THE CHICAGO OF EUROPE

Today, at least in Europe, almost everybody under 40 seems to be addicted to Berlin. In Northamerica the image of the city is still sometimes overshadowed by the dark chapters of its history. But it is massively changing from year to year. There are few people who spent some days in Berlin and are not marvelling about it.

Here is an urban music video impression of Berlin. It captures the raw, street art atmosphere and has an incredible hookline ....

My girlfriend is from Berlin and she has so many stories of incredible nightlife venues, arts scenes and the various cultural elements. It's a pleasure just listening to her recall experiences she's had while growing up in Berlin.

Young Israel's New Love Affair with Germany- Der Spiegel

Quote:
But Berlin is more than just the latest New York. It's a stage on which they can role play and explore their senses of belonging and identity -- a kind of what-if game: What if I had been born in Germany? Who would I be? What would my life be like today?

Top 10 art and architecture destinations - Hindustan Times

4. Berlin, Germany

Over the last 20 years, Berlin has emerged as one of the biggest art venues in Europe with an impressive selection of new architecture, exhibits and art galleries. But even with its new art scene, Berlin will always have strong ties to the past, which can be seen at one of the 17 Berlin State Museums that are divided into five clusters. Museumsinsel (Museum Island), a complex of five museums, is the largest in Europe, and is comprised of the Altes Museum, Neues Museum, Alte Nationalgalerie, Bode Museum, and Pergamon Museum, which were all built on the site of the original city settlement. The museums' collections range from Roman and Greek Classical Antiquities, to 19th century sculptures and paintings, to prehistory and early history.

I have to admit that Berlin is a much cooler and more progressive city than Vienna. Berlin, ich liebe dich!
